Rachael J
Software Systems Specialist

 

DriveTime’s culture encourages you to grow and challenge yourself. I started as an Intern in HR almost five years ago. I never would have expected that someday I’d be analyzing IT software solutions—but here I am, loving it! Amazing mentors have supported me in each direction my career has taken here and I’m lucky to have a group of colleagues that feels like family. I am passionate about what I do. It’s a bonus to work with such vibrant, fun, brilliant people every day.

I venture outdoors in my free time to take advantage of all this sunshine. I like to go hiking, running and road triping on long weekends. Baseball games out here are a must for me too. Cooking and sketching are my creative outlets of choice. I also hang out with my wonderful, fluffy German Shepherd mix whenever I can.
